any word on how this turned out? I'm curious because I thought this beer used a special mixture of like 3 different yeasts or something to get it's unique flavor.

Side by side comparison will be next week. Probably Tuesday. The beer tastes great, but I have know idea how the original tastes so... until next Tuesday(ish).

I'll take a photo of both in glasses and try to write up a comparison.

I'm aging my DT clone right now.

It was all LME and sugar, no specialty grains. Goldings and Saaz hops, with GoP, coriander, and ginger for flavor. Used cultured DT yeast.

This recipe is supposedly spot on. Found it on the northernbrewer forums if anyone wants to check it out.

I heard the same thing, that they use multiple yeast strains. I had it in bottle and on draft before and its sure is tasty but expensive.

Had a bunch of friends over to watch the Road tonight, and we did a side by side comparison of my attempt at DT with the real thing.

I have been drinking my clone for a couple of weeks and I have to admit it is my new favorite beer. However, I would not say that it is really close to the original.

I don't have photos, but srm of the original was about a 3 and mine was closer to a 5-6 on this chart. http://www.franklinbrew.org/brewinfo/printsrm.html

I would also say the original was a little lighter or drier, and that mine had more of a spiciness. I would say that mine also had a very slight alcohol bite in the background. Maybe mine needs to mellow a little more.

I would say that both are great beers. I think that I prefer mine more, which is a good thing since I have about 4 gallons left and I can't get the original in my area.

Oh, BTW The Road is very depressing.

LOL....I noticed that too. Admittedly, measuring 1/14 lb would have been a new one for me.
